Serenity in the City Salon and Spa?s licensed beauty and fitness professionals help clients look and feel better. Guests can sink into a pile of pillows in private pedicure nook or unwind side-by-side during services in the couples massage room. In the hair salon, stylists cut, color, and add extensions to locks, enhancing each experience with high-end products from Schwarzkopf, Rusk, and Jennifer Aniston's Living Proof line. Spray tans, waxing sessions, and facials round out the pampering services. A designated studio space hosts fitness classes that range from high-energy Zumba workouts to core-strengthening Pilates. The studio is gently heated for Vinyasa-style yoga sessions that work to detoxify bodies and thaw frozen ponytails in winter months.
Winchester Electrology & Laser Center founder Paula O'Byrne and her staff are single-mindedly devoted to one mission: hair removal. Armed with a GentleLase laser, technicians zap away unwanted follicles while a built-in cryogen spray keeps the skin cool. For hair that stubbornly sticks around after multiple laser sessions, electrolysis services can shut down the most stubborn of follicles. Between both methods, the savvy techs can stop hair growth in a large area or shape sideburns to naturally grow into lightning bolts.
The cosmetic clinicians at Essentially Bare rely on a combination of lasers and pharmaceutical-grade products to correct a range of skin issues. Their Lumenis laser has cleared hair from more than 8,000 clients and a dozen former werewolves, and the Q-switched Spectra lasers can erase unwanted tattoos in half the normal amount of treatments required and in shorter intervals between treatments than traditional laser tattoo removal. Additionally, the Spectra lasers effectively target most ink colors, resulting in a significantly lightened or completely erased tattoo in a short time frame.
Before administering any treatments, staff members demonstrate their commitment to personalized care by thoroughly analyzing clients' skin. Essentially Bare also provides physician-only skin care with peels and facials featuring professional brands, such as Obagi, SkinCeuticals and Image Skincare, to ward off wrinkles, redness, and acne. Overall, they offer a wide variety of services such as laser hair removal, Botox and fillers, IPL photo facials, spider vein removal, and more.
Image Care Electrolysis & Advanced Skin Care owner Kerrin Mazzola takes hair removal seriously, picking up the electrolysis wand herself to permanently eliminate unwanted fuzz. Together with her fellow defoliators, she zaps offending follicles with quick currents of electricity, destroying and cauterizing hair-growing follicles to prevent subsequent regrowth. The center takes care of underlying skin as well, with dermatological services that include facials and microdermabrasions that buff away dead cells and polish rocks' geode-flecked faces.
The certified laser technicians, registered nurses, and medical aestheticians who staff Advanced Laser & Skin Center stay up-to-date on modern trends to provide the most advanced aesthetic services. Under the supervision of a medical doctor, they perform technology-based treatments such as Venus Freeze and Thermage, which noninvasively tightens and smoothes the skin, or DermaSound facials that remove dead cells using low-frequency ultrasound waves and extragentle jackhammers. Other procedures, such as laser hair-removal or spider-vein treatments, foster beautiful skin that spans the entire body. Patrons can also opt for old-fashioned pampering in the form of facials that incorporate natural ingredients such as chamomile or pineapple enzymes.
gohspa?whose prefix is a hidden acronym of green, organic, holistic?is a beauty haven where staffers use purified water and skincare formulas that are organic, vegan, and, upon request, gluten free. The building is unsurprisingly green-certified, and the spa was designed with the environment in mind by using cork floors, LED lighting, and energy efficient washers, dryers, and heating and cooling systems. All services have the safety and well-being of both staff and clients in mind. Pedicures, for example, take place in a pipeless unit featuring a filtered dual-water system, with polish that is free of formaldehyde, camphor, or glitter harvested from radioactive pixies.
